Platform screen doors[edit]

After several successful test at Jurong East, Yishun and Pasir Ris and eventually, installation of the half-height screen doors.Installation started in December 2010 and the platform screen doors started operations on 25 February 2011 with Kallang.[1]

Installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans. Started operating since 14 July 2012 together with Paya Lebar.
